The world exists in degrees, and the spirit in relation to the world exists in degrees. This means we cannot apply an absolute label of “illusion” or “reality” to any phenomena. Rather everything has a measure of reality and illusion. There is nothing disappointing in this, for reality may still visit us with more than we can contain.
Are my words true or false? I see that the idea of “spirit in relation to the world” is a division contrary to unity. Unity is real, but language and thought are full of divisions. Yet the pieces of language help build a necessary bridge. Words may come as dead things. But let there be an arc of light between them.
